Good luck getting anything productive done today.
It’s all thanks to the Internet Archive, which just dumped this incredible list of games here, free to play. Games like Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Total Carnage, Street Fighter 2, Championship Manager, Speedball II, Turrican II, Rick Dangerous…
Actually it almost feels silly to list favourites. You just have to go and see for yourself. It’s such a incredibly powerful list of games I don’t even know where to begin.
Oh wait, I totally know where to begin. They have The Oregon Trail.
Oh dear lord God in heaven. They have the original Sim City.
So yeah, my working day is pretty much ruined.
Also: if, like me, you were wondering about the legality of this whole endeavour this is worth reading. Put simply, this whole collection is perfectly legalas a result of some exemptions, mainly to do with games on obsolete hardware. Play without guilt my friends!
